Passing by Toronto’s Office & Shop Furniture yesterday, I was stopped in my tracks by the window display of the new Pasha Chair from Italy’s Pedrali. Where Philippe Stark borrowed an open-armed, medallion-back design for his ubiquitous Louis Ghost Chair, Pedrali goes for the full-on Bergere. What’s so striking is how thin and impossibly sexy the molded polycarbonate is; priced at $560 each, the chair is brand new to North America and comes in black, white, clear or smoked with a fabric seat cushion for added comfort.
But that wasn’t the only thing I was jazzed about at Office & Shop: another new arrival is Japanese designer Yasu Sasamoto’s Wisdom stool, below. The gleaming chromed steel design is beyond cool with a striking, alien feel about it. The best part is the price point, only $149 each.
And if you’ve been on the hunt for a suddenly-trendy medical supply cabinet, look no further; Office & Shop just received a shipment of these dressy storage pieces in large and half sizes ($995 and $649). You heard it here first.
